    The Build

    Now you lean back and we will do the hard work for you. A tiny house build usually takes around 3 months but depending on the finishes selected it could take longer. You’ll get a completion date specified in your build contract which will be the most accurate date reasonable taking availability of major build elements and existing jobs into account. We will send you updates of the build with photos and you can book appointments to come and check out the progress of your house.

     

  • Deliver it

  • the big day

    Delivery

    Your tiny house is completed and now you are ready to move in. Come by and inspect your house before delivery takes place and sign the ownership papers. Even though your tiny house is on a trailer it is not legal to tow it as it is more than 3.5 tonnes, so it will be put onto a low loader truck and it will be delivered safely to your site.

designed for you Premium Materials

If you’ve done a little research on tiny house frames already, you’ve probably come across the two main options for framing: Timber framing and steel framing. We at Absolute Tiny Houses use steel frames because they are lighter  and straighter than timber. We think it’s simply a genius way to build a tiny house frame.

After being on the market for a couple of years now and doing extensive research on which materials are most suited for Tiny houses we are certain that we are using the best materials that are on the New Zealand market for our tiny house builds.

For the exterior we like to play around with cladding and usually use a mix of vinyl cladding or corrugated iron and cedar panels to make your tiny house look unique!

Honestly, we wouldn’t be able to sleep at night, if we used low quality materials. As for flooring we usually use vinyl and/or carpet. We believe vinyl flooring is a great option because you can pick your preferred look, it’s very cost efficient and durable.
